Holiday Entertaining, Fairway Style

The shelves are stocked high with candy canes, cookies, and all sorts of sweet treats. Our butcher has brought out the finest roasts. All around the store, there’s an air of good cheer… it must be the holidays at Fairway! And that means it’s time to gather ‘round with our favorite people and celebrate the season with laughs, love, and lots of good food.

Hosting a holiday gathering is easy with the right recipes and ingredients. Fairway Market has got you covered on that end: from festive grab-and-go items to everything you need to whip up a gourmet feast, you’ll find everything you need in our stores. But if you’re still wondering just how you’re going to please everyone on your guest list, we’ve got a few tips on how to put together an easy, no-fail party spread with all the best ingredients.

Fairway Hummus

1. No party is complete without a dip (or several).

Head to our deli section to find all of our best, freshly-made dips for dunking and scooping. From creamy guacamole to zesty salsas to a mind-blowing array of hummus, we have plenty of ways to fill out your appetizer spread. And don’t forget to pick up a few of our legendary baguettes or house-made tortilla chips to go along with them.

It’s easy to put together and is guaranteed to impress your guests when you choose from one of our 600+ cheeses and dazzling array of hand-sliced meats—just ask for a recommendation! Whether you fancy paper-thin slices of aged San Daniele prosciutto or one of our custom-selected Manchegos or Comtés, there’s no shortage of stunners to choose from.

Crudite Platter

3. Make sure to add some healthy and lighter bites.

We’re inundated by indulgent foods all season long, so a few alternatives are always appreciated. In our produce section, you’ll find plenty of pre-washed greens and pre-chopped veggies that’ll make tossing together a salad or crudité plate easy-peasy. Or grab some ingredients for making veg-based dishes, like stuffed mushrooms or bruschetta. Even just a nice big bag of in-season citrus can be a welcome diversion from all the excess.


4. Big-batch cocktails are the way to go.

Especially when you want drinks that are festive but easy to make. Fairway prosecco is the perfect mixer for punches and other fruity drinks, plus it will add extra cheer with its bubbles. Or pick up a few bottles of a nice big red for making mulled wine with spices. You can find either—plus many other party-perfect beverages—at our wine stores.

5. Embrace the cookie platter

We love holiday baking and have all the eggs, butter, and sprinkles for that. But with larger gatherings, it’s much more efficient to pick up a few ready-made treats. At our bakery, we have all the sweet confections that’ll keep the festivities merry. Grab a tray of decorated cookies or cupcakes or maybe one of our delicious, traditional pies and you’ll be all set.
